Super-competitive mum ensures victory at parents race by shoving other mum out of the way

A super-competitive mum ensured her victory in the parents' race at her daughter's sports day - by pushing another mum out the way and sending her FLYING.

Katie McDermott, 25, was prepared to do anything to win on Wednesday (13).

The red-haired mum can be seen running neck-and-neck with another mum on the run to the finish line.

After realising she was about to be beaten, Katie pushed her competitor - sending the woman FLYING.

Katie, from Coventry, said: "I told my daughter I would be number one, so I had to be!

"I could see she was winning - so I just gave her a quick nudge and she took off in the air.

"I don't know what possessed me to do it, I was just thinking about how I wanted to win so badly!

"I didn't know the mum very well - everyone was shocked but we just carried on as normal afterwards.

"If you see this, sorry that I pushed you - I didn't mean to send you flying!

"I don't regret it though, because I won!"
